Have to wear a school uniform this year? Want to stand out and make it your own? We dug up some of our favorite looks on Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf, Serena van der Woodsen, and Jenny Humphrey back in their days at Constance Billard.

To get the ideas for their looks, costume designer Eric Daman studied how Upper East Side private school girls “tricked out” their uniforms with accessories like bags, shoes, tights, etc. What he came up with some of the most iconic fashion looks on TV.

    I don’t have a school uniform… and it’s a good job! I like my style being normal, but special in it’s own way. All ways wearing something more, but that’s not too noticed. Basically, from 5th grade to 7th grade, nobody’s taken any notice of me, but this year i want it to change! This year it’s my year too rule the school! But tell me, how would you change to being the normal girl to being the most popular girl in school? What would you wear for the perfect outfit for the perfect first day?
